The Leibster Award

Friday, October 30, 2015

I am elated, honored and motivated to blog even more thanks to these amazing ladies in the blogging network who nominated me for "The Leibster Award". The year 2015 has been so special for me. The urge of that "doing something extra to make life interesting and worthwhile " had got me into blogging. I have been an ardent follower of the blogging world since a long time and always wanted to have my own blog. But then laziness used to take over.

After my marriage my husband has been pushing me to start writing and his words were " You spend so much on your skin care and make up and you cook so well, why don't you share it with all and have a blog". Again I was utterly lazy. But that extra push came from a dear friend of mine who is suffering from a life threatening grave disease. One day he told me, you never know how long you have time with you, so till the time you have why not do something that you always wanted to do. He wanted to write a book himself. But his words got me into seriously thinking about writing and starting my own blog.

One fine weekend afternoon during the month of April, I was saying about my friends statement to my husband, he spoke no word to me, he got up took out my laptop and told me, "Start it right now or you never will". That was the very day I thought of a name and created a blog in Blogger. And there it was The Rainbow Lady. There has been no looking back ever since. My blog has been my passion, a sheer happiness, a go to place for me to hide when I am upset or life is throwing too many tantrums at me. It is my baby and it gives me sheer joy.

I want to thank all the friends that I have made here and also my readers for their love and support. I humbly thank Aditi from Serene Sparkles and lovely Sangeeta from Beauty Nyx for nominating me for this award. So I am going to answer all of the questions given by both of these ladies.

My Answers to Aditi of Serene Sparkles's questions :

It has to be the Silksplash Rehydrant Face Wash by Just herbs. I do not have the count of how many bottles I have finished and to how many people I have referred this to.

Tell me one of your most favorite motivational quotes?

A girl should be two things classy and fabulous - Coco Chanel

Have you ever wanted to learn a foreign language? If yes, then which one?

I have learnt French, wrote the DELF A1 exam, always wanted to continue my studies on the language. May be in future I would continue.

What do you think looks more beautiful Sunset or Sunrise?

Burger, a good ham burger.

Can it is three ? Its Lipstick, Eyeliner and Mascara.

Has blogging helped you in anyways like making new friends, confidence, developing writing skills, being organised etc.?

Off course, I have come to known so many amazing people in this blogging world. Honestly I do not think blogging has increased my confidence, writing skills or being organised. I am an IT professional for the past 6 years, so I write like hundred mails a day, talk to clients daily and have to be organized to manage thousands kinds of work modules.

Do you follow any superstitions?

Not at all, I have faith in GOD and that's it, I am not religious and nor do I support any superstition. I am a little peeved on ghosts though if that counts.

How do help yourself come out of a bad mood?

Baking, if I am sad I bake a cake and eat it too while watching TV series marathon.

My Answers to Sangeeta of BeautyNyx's questions :

Paris, France.

Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday which is my all time favorite romantic movie, I just love everything about it.

If you had to give up one forever which would be – lipstick or lipgloss?

Lipgloss. Cannot live without lipstick.

Who was your childhood hero?

Still is, my Father.

If the sky is the limit, what would you like to do next?

I always wanted to have a little cute bake shop / dessert shop. May be I would be able to venture into it in future.

What is your favorite makeup and skincare trick?

Skincare : When not in mood to do toning and moisturizing. I take couple of drops of sweet almond oil and apply all over my face and I am done for the night.

Make up : Dab a little translucent powder on top on my eyelid after applying gel eyeliner to prevent it from getting smudged on my super oily eye lid.
